Dual booting with Linux, using `hive-replace` to only replace part of a partition

Hi, has anyone used hive-replace to replace a partition on a dual boot system HDD? I have a hard-drive with ArchLinux and Ubuntu and my goal was to replace Ubuntu with HiveOS. I have tried manually transferring from a flash drive to the hard drive. I’ve tried this a few times and it never shows up in grub after rebooting. I was hoping hive-replace might be a more straightforward solution.

Any help is appreciated.

Hello, make sure you have os-prober installed on Arch.

For bios, run: # grub-install --target=i386-pc /dev/sdX
For UEFI, run: # grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --efi-directory=esp --bootloader-id=GRUB

Then run: # grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

It should then be detected after a reboot.
I haven’t tested it yet, I’m about to dual boot with arch myself, still just off usb for now.
